Spring Term

PE lessons this term:


Over Spring term Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and 4 have all been enjoying yoga sessions with Chie! We have even had some staff yoga sessions to help us develop our own yoga practice! 


Year 4 have finished their course of swimming lessons and have noticed an astounding difference in ability to swim! Every single child was able to swim a length of the pool! Well done Hawks, you were amazing and showed the school promises at each and every swimming session.

Up and Under:

Years Rec, 1, 2, 3 and 5 have loved having Mr Peters from Up and Under come in to teach them over this spring term. They have enjoyed learning TAG Rugby and Netball. We also have a wonderful after-school club hosted by Mr Peters each Monday evening! 

 Forest School

As usual we are loving our Forest School sessions at By Brook Valley! Mr Summers is helping us to develop our outdoor learning skills and during the Spring Term Year 1 and Year 6 have enjoyed their sessions out in our Forest School area. 

TAG Rugby:

This term Year 4 and Year 6 enjoyed getting together to play mixed games of TAG Rugby. To put our learning into practice we enjoyed some TAG Rugby sessions together, working on skill development and playing matches. 


Sports Leaders: 

This term our sports leaders have been developing what it means to be a sports leader and what skills we need to demonstrate and work on. All of the sports leaders have created and are leading their own lunchtime clubs (basketball and dance). We are now focusing on creating play buddies in the playground to help support each child at By Brook Valley during our free play times. We look forward to putting this into practice next term.

Star of the week Extra Play time:

As we are a 'Healthy School' here at By Brook, we have chosen to celebrate our 'Star of the Week' children from this term with an extra playtime! At the end of the term Mrs Henshall will be taking those children out for another extra playtime!

What to watch out for next term!

Yoga: Next term Reception, Year 1 and 2 are lucky enough to have yoga with Chie each Tuesday!

Up and Under: Next term Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 5 will be doing Athletics with Mr Peters, in preparation for our yearly sports day.

Year 4 and 6: Year 4 and Year 6 will be doing Athletics and tennis with their teachers. Years 3 and 5 will also be doing tennis next term. 

Netball Tournament: Next term we are hoping to organise a netball tournament for KS2. 

See you next term for lots more PE fun!
